Elliott Carter

The composer Elliott Carter died yesterday, November 5, at the age of 103. Library Journal said of The Music of Elliott Carter, Second Edition, by David Schiff: “This new edition effectively replaces the earlier one and is particularly welcome for its inclusion of a wealth of compositions and bibliographic citations from 1981 to 1998. . . . A chronological list of works, an extensive bibliography, and a discography add immeasurably to this volume. Highly recommended for sophisticated music collections.”—Library Journal
